Two are front of mind right now —

…we are more alike, my friend, than we are unalike. —Maya Angelou, from her poem “Human Family”

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. —Gandalf, “The Lord of the Rings”

I lied.

What’s up, doc? —Bugs Bunny

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. —Jesus

Okay, just one more.

the emerging child reminds me I have a face of my own, gives me the courage to be myself, protects me against being like everybody else, and calls forth that living, vibrant, magnificent image of Jesus Christ that is within me waiting only to unfold and be expressed. —Brennan Manning, Reflections for Ragamuffins
